Triathlons, bats, and cahonas – Iain Berthinussen – #101

My guest this week is Head Coach of Edinburgh Accies – Iain Berthinussen.

This interview was recorded in February of 2023 and we talked about Berti’s remarkable feats of endurance, his experience with testicular cancer, the amazing new Accies clubhouse, growing up and learning rugby in the Scottish borders, playing overseas in Australia, and growing rugby with the BATs programme in Edinburgh.

Berti’s landline rang for the first time in several years and a pack of dogs started barking outside my room, but it didn’t detract from a fantastic chat – I hope you enjoy!
